Dune for Lynch fans, Lynch for Dune fans
Thanks for visiting my website, chances are if you are here you’re a fan of burlesque, David Lynch, Dune or perhaps we went to high school together. The Dune show is tonight and it has occurred to me that many David Lynch fans are not Dune fans and many Dune fans are not fans of David Lynch. For many years I was not a fan of Dune because I had NO CLUE as to what is was about. After watching it a handful of time I started to understand it and LIKING it! Still, many people feel that this is not a traditional Lynch film and I would tend to agree with that primarily because it is so big budget.
Upon multiple viewings of Dune I did start to see “Lynch-isms” that I didn’t notice at first. Here is a list of interesting connections that I noticed I’m sure you’ll love or hate. Feel free to tweet me your thoughts. I’ll leave it at that. I have a Dune Burlesque show to get ready for.
Dreams, premonition dreams
Dwarves in spotlights
Women who are victims but also strong
Star is often an only child (until sister is born in Dune)
Weird evil characters
An innocent man drawn into darkness (Kyle MacLachlan)
Open air sound
Toto soundtrack has Badalamenti style sounds at times
Close ups of mouths
Close familial relationships
Mothers who scream and cry a lot
Weird evil voices that sound like possession
Creepy still life montages
People having different names
Redheads who can overpower Everett McGill
Love at first sight
Drinking the water of life = entering the black lodge???!!!
Religious symbolism – tears of blood
Drugs that bring on shamanistic qualities (or personality transformation)
That’s all for now folks – I’ll see YOU in my dreams! – Francine
